    So basically:

    NES Games are gonna be £3.50, SNES games £5.60, and N64 for £7.

    I was hoping for about half that price, does seem a little expensive.

    I wonder if the downloads credited are logged in your Wii Connect24 account, allowing you to download the games again freely if you accidently delete them or whatever...

    To be honest, i feel slightly stabbed in the back by Nintendo. Of course im still going to get the Wii but everyone has been saying o man the Wii is going to cost so much less then the 360 and PS3.....well quite frankly....no its not going to....i mean $60 for controller and nuncachuk......$50 for each game....$250 for the system.....and now $20 for a maximum of 4 NES games.....2 SNES games...and 2 N64 games that puts it to about $50 less than the Xbox 360 ($400) which really isnt to much of a difference......and plus everyone is going to be buying more and more games on the VC increasing the amount and everything where the 360 the only thing that is increasing the money spent is games for the system, and online service....which is only like 5 bucks a month and really isnt enough for people to complain about....especially because they get like 2-12 month free cards........geez i thought the Wii was going to be "so" much cheaper than the other systems

    you have added up the extra controller for the wii a game and 2-4 VC games... the wii itself and its still $50 cheaper than a 360?

    now get the total for a 360 + 1 controller + 1 game + 4 other little tiny games (you can buy over xbox live) and i can assure you that gap will be greater than $50...

    compare apples to apples not apples to oranges...

    since when was $50 A BAD THING? Thats a great thing, and if you do the costs, 60 for a controller while its 50 for a game, and its reverse for like 360, your saving MORE money. and they havent even revealed if they will do a wiimote+nunchuk for $50. who carers about VC, you dont HAVE to buy it, at most if they have REALLY good games i will buy them. but if no one buys them nintendo might lower the price

    £7 for a N64 game is bargain.

    i don't know why you guys are complaining, nintendo is giving you exactly what it told you at E3. its not going to be over 250 dollars, vc games are gonna be 5-10 dollars and games will be no more than 50 dollars. The wiimote and nunchuck is going to be packaged together not separately. Since they're the whole point of the f***ing console the price is good the way it is.

    woops, sorry for the bad grammar but I'm just so angry at people because they're complaining about the price that was already been told to them for about 5-6 months.

    i think its a little expensive for the nes and snes games, i can find them for a few $'s, instead of paying $5 for them.
